Terri Cortvriend, Candidate for State Rep D72 named Candidate of Distinction by Moms Demand Action
I am honored to have received the Moms Demand Action Gun Sense Candidate Distinction. I look forward to working right along side the Moms of RI to create sensible gun safety legislation respectful of the 2nd amendment that will make our communities safer and save lives
Reducing and preventing gun violence is a public safety issue, not a political one. Over 35,000 Americans are killed every year by gun violence and thousands more are injured. Responsible gun owners know that supporting the Second Amendment goes hand in hand with common-sense solutions to reduce gun violence. We need to do more to keep guns out of the hands of felons, domestic abusers and people with dangerous histories, knowing that respecting rights and protecting people go hand-in-hand.
